Pat worked with me on my divorce and a subsequent change to the divorce agreement. She is caring, responsive and always very helpful. I would definitely recommend her.
I hesitated to post this, but after much thought decided that I don't want one more person to endure the lack of representation that I experienced at the hands of this lawyer.
I spoke to her several times before my case came up; each time she talked to me about what to expect when I got to court she told me a different story. She was recommended as an expert in the field she represented me in; I was horrified to find out that when we actually got to my hearing she told me I was going to plead guilty. I could have done this without having paid her. It was my understanding prior to the hearing that I would be charged with a lesser offense.
I don't know if she is just lazy or if she is truly ignorant, but I feel as though my life has been permanently altered because I trusted her advice. The entire time I worked with her all she could talk about was the fact that she was transitioning to juvenile law and that she was in a hurry to clear her calendar.
After the devastating outcome of my hearing she happily told me about her singing group and how they were going to be making a CD.
I have talked to several people since this hearing and all of them have told me that I got screwed. It's too late to fix this now.
I let her know about how devastated I was by the outcome of this whole thing and she really didn't care.
Ms. Buonodono has represented me in several legal matters related to my divorce and custody of my son. She is an excellent attorney and has worked very hard to help me. I can't say enough positive things about her.
